Stark's had to get back in his box for a while. I know, I know, I've not produced any fiction since last year and that rogue Ryan is kicking around Murder Island ready to go home. Unfortunately for him, he's going to have to stay there for a while. Thing is, I've picked up a … Continue reading Hoodoo you do?
So it's been pretty quiet around, despite my mouthing off that I'd get some work done and produce some more Stark style action horror. In all honesty I've been working on a couple of side projects that didn't go anywhere. These things happen and it's never really a waste of time if you (l)earn something. … Continue reading Hush Now!
Court is out of the way. The kids are safe for now. That's pretty much all I can say on the matter. Now that's all done with, there's a large chunk of my brain that's no longer occupied with legal business. Unsurprisingly, those idle neurons are now firing off ideas in every direction. It may … Continue reading The Kids are Alright
Four months, eh? That has to be a record. The internet is filled with discarded blogs, journals left to fend for themselves in the wild. I'd say four months is long enough to consider a thing deceased. Heck, if I didn't do anything foe four months, I'd find myself looking up at a nice pine … Continue reading Rise from your grave and rescue my daughter(s)!
Wolf Mama (considering changing that) now has every single scene in plotted, dissected, reassembled and stitched up. I'm ready to roll! Occasionally I get to this point and feel a massive emotional slump, as if I've told the story I wanted to tell and that there's no point cracking on. Not this time, oh no! … Continue reading Howlin’
I think I mentioned that Wolf Mama was originally set to be a short story. If I did, then I also mentioned that it's grown into something more resembling a novella. Well, since I use Randy Ingermanson's (sorry if I misspelt that) Snowflake method when I outline (it's never let me down), I've reached the … Continue reading Big Mama
Couldn't think of a title so randomly punches the phone's autocue. Sorry about that. In other news, the day with the Weight Swingers appears to have been productive. Orchid is hopeful that the kids will be properly served by the legal system. She's my silver lining girl, so it was going to pan out that … Continue reading That’s the spirit of the new fish
Time. Where the hell does it go? I know at least two weeks have vanished since I last updated, but I'll be damned if I can say where they went! Same's true for Wolf Mama. Due to various other duties, I've not got a word in on that. Poor old Clara is frozen in time, … Continue reading Most Valuable Commodity Coming Back on the Market
Wolf Mama is coming along. Things are progressing and I'm happy enough with the way Clara Tao is handling the situation. Things weren't quite so smooth initially. The tale jumped into my heald half-formed and wrapped in the accoutrements of Viking lore. Although I loved tales and history of those Dark Age pirates in my … Continue reading One Shot to the Brain
January's gone. The maddening dance around courts and social services has eased down to a white noise rasp in the back of our heads. Our campaign to keep the seedlings safe from the Corrupter's influence has hit a quiet spot. January has washed away into the time stream. I've got nothing done. Well, obviously I've … Continue reading Lull in Hostilities
